This one?

i am having a dilemma, hd 555 or ad700 for the purpose of Dolby headphone?, i do not know which to get, either way i am also debating between buying used with no box for 70$ or looking and hoping to find them for 80$ which everyone keeps saying you can find them for, anyone have a good link to buy them...

Hello gamers, I would like to purchase one of these two, akg 702's or senn's 598 for just gaming only. I don't need a mic. I like treble and clarity for postioning (footsteps). Which one would be better for me?

I would go with the AD700, they're great for gaming.

Both are fairly good headphones, I would go with the one you can find a better deal for. I purchased the 598s so I am a bit biased.

The K70x is more of a detail whoring headphone than the HD598. No other headphone I have used can pick up as much detail as the K70x. The huge soundstage also lends itself very well in Dolby Headphone gaming. If you're not using a mic, the K70x performs quite well just off the Mixamp alone for gaming purposes.

Otherwise, the HD598 is awesome itself, much easier to drive, and cheaper.

That one is probably good too but this is the one I've tried:

It has a small "lip" on the plug end of it to secure it to the Tritton headphones that shouldn't get in the way but can be easily removed if it does.

Jae304: just to be clear, what type of connector does that Tritton mic use?

Anyone heard of Xjacker? They claim to be able to amp and mix the 2 audio signals, plus adapt a regular PC headset's mic for use on 360. Here's the link:
http://www.xjacker.com/instructions_gaming_headset_amp_kit.php

Doesn't look any different from plugging my headphones into an amp, and having the 360's wired headset around my neck (for use of mic).
Problem with that setup is chat audio isn't amped independent of game audio--again, Xjacker looks to run into the same problem. What do you guys think?

It'd be so much easier if I just gave in and got a wired mixamp.


I actually have one of these, and have become quite a fan as of late.  As it turns out, there is a software mixer in the 360's menus that let you adjust the mix levels between game sounds and chat.  Then I use their amp to boost the overall levels to something pleasing.  I had thought that it would be difficult to make on-the-fly adjustments to the mix between game sounds and chat.  But as I've found out, my initial settings were pretty spot on as I've never had to adjust it any further - and have never had a problem hearing both the game and chat.  Audiophile quality it is not, but then for $20 it really can't be expected to be.  That having been said, it does sound reasonably good.  There is a review for it at Voodoo Extreme (http://ve3d.ign.com/articles/reviews/60588/Soniq-Rush-Gaming-Headset-Amp-Kit-Review) that has some more perspectives if anyone is curious about it.

3.5mm stereo plug

The mic itself is made of  flexible rubber.  Not quite as flexible as a traditional boom mic, but voice quality is very good when I've used it with the Astro mixamp on ps3.

Jae304, warrenpchi: thanks for shedding light on various issues. welcome to Head-Fi warrenpchi!

Jae: I ended up buying a clip-on Aiwa mic from my local, mom-n-pop hardware store. The store's never let me down, and it's popular with DIY'ers so I figured I'd give it a shot. I'll report back after my next gaming session.

Thanks Eric_C!  Truth be told, I have reading here for about a year now, but I never joined because frankly the depth of knowledge that all of you possess can be damn intimidating.  Just found it hard to see what it was that I could contribute. However, finding your post made be bite the bullet and finally join.  Since I just happen to have one of those, it was the perfect opportunity to post something that might be of help somehow.

Cool, definitely give us your impressions. It's good to know the viable mic options that are out there not to mention supporting the local business is always a good thing.  If you don't mind me asking, how much was the clip on you bought?

I've always wondered why this does nothing for me. Voice volume is identical 1-10 volume, it's only muted at 0. Game volume is identical from 0-10. Both with the mixamp+cans and PX5s. Why is this?
